Ln r 12

Constrain the EOS of Asymmetric Nuclear Systems

Study Heavy Ion Collisions with Multiple Probes

Isoscaling, M-scaling, Isobaric Yield Ratios

Motivation

Directed Flow

  • EOS relates T, ρ, P, E*/A.

  • N-Z asymmetry remains the largest uncertainty.

soft

stiff

Source reconstruction allows scaling over broadest range of isotopes (up to 8 per Z).

 Limits set on Csym

  • How does asymmetry affect

  • total energy?

  • temperature?

  • density?

  • pressure?

(AMD)

ln(R12)

Directed flow (IMFs, PLFs and LCPs) is sensitive to the Esym

Asymmetry Dependence of Thermodynamic Parameters

Source reconstruction allows extraction of thermodynamic parameters for the primary excited isotopically resolved system.

Dependence on N-Z asymmetry observed in T, ρ, P, Tc, ρc, and Pc

Ongoing Efforts

Isospin Diffusion

Proton-Proton Correlations

  • Multiple isospin transport observables in single data set.

  • Double cross-bombardment: 64Ni/64Zn/70Zn + 64Ni/64Zn/70Zn

  • NIMROD/ISiS array: 4πcharged particles and neutrons

“Soft” (x=1)

70Zn+70Zn

Nuclear Shape Deformation

70Zn+64Zn

  • 124Xe + 58Ni and 136Xe,124Sn+64Ni @ 15 MeV/u

  • FAUST + QTS spectrometer

  • Deformation (quad, oct) predicted sensitive to Esym

  • Sliced Inverse Regression may improve sensitivity

64Zn+64Zn

  • Predicted sensitivity to Esym

  • 40Ca + 58,64Ni @ 45 MeV/u

  • FAUST array: Si/CsI

  • Position to <200um  precision correlations

Constrain the EOS of Asymmetric Nuclear Systems

Future Aims and Challenges

Asymmetry dependence of temperatures, densities: verify and quantify

  • Low to intermediate energy N-Z asymmetric beams (15-35 MeV/u)

  • Residue spectrometer – QTS, MDM, MARS at TAMU

  • Charged particle detector – FAUST, NIMROD

Extend measurements to more exotic asymmetry

  • Observables of interest

  • Directed flow

  • Isoscaling of the heavy residues

  • Isospin transport observables

  • Deformation of PLF

  • Needs:

  • Fermi-energy N-Z asymmetric beams (~35 MeV/u)

  • Large acceptance charged particle & neutron array with isotopic resolution

    • NIMROD, FAUST at TAMU

  • Couple to spectrometer – MARS, MDM at TAMU
